Dr. Craig Scibal – Optometrist & Owner

Dr. Craig Scibal was born and raised in eastern NC (Morehead City) as the middle of 3 boys. He graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill in 2009 with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology. Following his undergraduate studies, he headed west to the University of Houston College of Optometry and graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2014. While in school, he received numerous clinical scholarships and awards and was nominated to give the commencement speech at graduation.

“I moved back to eastern NC because of my love of living on the coast. I enjoy surfing, drumming, attempting to play sports, live music, sipping craft beer, and going on adventures with my dog, Horatio Fizkin Scibal.”

Dr. Scibal married his wife Cameron on Bald Head Island in April of 2018.  In doing so, Horatio also gained a sister, a yellow lab named Addison Lee.  Dr. Scibal and Cameron welcomed their first son, Bennett David Scibal, into the world July 9, 2019.  Having just built a house downtown you can find the Scibal family roaming the streets of historic Downtown Wilmington on a daily basis!

He is super excited to have the opportunity to serve the wonderful people of Leland/Wilmington and can’t wait to develop lasting positive relationships with his patients!
